Job description

Company presentation

Lytid develops and commercializes advanced photonic products for industry and academy. Our goal is valorizing state-of-the-art THz and IR technologies into high-performance and accessible products. Diverse core technologies are employed by Lytid, including Quantum Cascade Lasers, electronic multiplied sources based on planar GaAs Schottky diodes, InGaAs SWIR scientific camera and mmw/sub-THz FMCW sensors. Our portfolio is developed with the aim of making these technologies available to demanding users who want to explore IR and THz applications, while delivering a plug&play, user-friendly product. Our systems are compact, powerful, reliable, easy-to-use and fully integrated, releasing the users from the complexity of the technologies.
As high-end THz and IR technologies, originally exclusively available in research labs, are made available for industry, awareness of their potential for industrial applications is rapidly raising. Applications to non-destructive testing, medical imaging, quality control in Pharma and Agrifood can benefit from Lytid’s solutions, suitable for both academic and industrial end-users.
In the frame of supporting its fast growth on our specific technologies, along with the enrichment and constant improvement of our product range, Lytid is looking to hire a talented co-worker specialized in:

Algorithmic developments and data processing

You will integrate the existing technical and development team. You have a strong appetite for demanding algorithmic and advanced data processing approaches, wrapped in a startup-like entrepreneurial spirit with additional embedded software development capabilities. Your passion for highly-technological products can drive you on specific challenges, and prospective works.
You will be in charge of the software developments related to our fast-growing FMCW radar projects, including development of new algorithms, signal processing chain designs and application-specific machine learning techniques. Embedded development is an integral part of the job.
